DroneShield will take part in the major military training exercise which is run annually by the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO).and attended by around 1,800 personnel from 10 NATO countries.

"As the DroneShield systems are gaining momentum with the European end users, we are very pleased to have this opportunity to demonstrate our system to the Danish Special Forces, one of the most sophisticated Special Operations Command end users globally, at this high-profile military exercise," says Vornik.

DroneShield's futuristic-looking drone defence products range from a handheld jammer called the DroneGun to the advanced DroneSentry which provides maximum situational awareness and the quickest response to airborne threats. Read more
